So the second day at the Nashville Comic Con and Horror Fest was as good as the first. Pretty much the same vendors as the first even the cast of the Walking Dead was still there. This time I got to speak with Mrs Jones (Keisha Tills) for a bit and she thank us for watching the series. Seems like the whole panel of the Walking Dead were very gracious and had an up beat attitude that was contagious. Not bad for a bunch of zombies. The rest of the day I spent getting to know some of the vendors , checking out in brief the Dr Who panel and finally talking to some of the artist. One in particular that was real friendly and was really willing to talk about his work was author Bill Cain. An Iraqi vet that followed his love of writing after retiring from the service . Some of his writing is of his time in the service but he also wrote some tales that were fiction. One was a novel called I Know Why the Dogwoods Blush a supernatural thriller and the other is a comic called Void. I could not help but to notice a comment on the about page by Stan Lee himself.
I dig the title “Void”– it’s compelling, original and has an air of dark mystery to it. The art looks terrific and I suspect your title character will have a whole kaboodle of secrets we’ll be unravelling as the series goes by. It’s a provocative beginning and I’ll be following with great interest to see where the talented Bill Cain and his
oh-so-promising creation Void are gonna take us.
After the insightful talk I had with Bill Cain I meandered a couple of tables up to an artist who also started his own comic book company named Clint Basinger of Cosmic Mustache Comics. Spread out on his table were sketches and paintings of various characters form shows , movies , you name it he did. Which I had to get the one of an Alien form the Alien movies which also came with a comic of my choice ( I chose the comic Tricker ) which were both signed and dated by Clint. Next was the Dr Who Panel. A little disappointing in that I thought there were going to be people associated with the show but it was interesting and enjoyable never the less. In fact it was 4 girls dressed in Dr Whovian type of wears whose names I did not get that were huge fans of the show from what I gathered. If anyone has a any info about them please post a comment. That is what you get when you walk in late and leave early because of an antsy 5 year old that can not sit still for one of those Q and A gatherings. But they seemed to have a good knowledge of the show especially of the last 3 Dr's. After browsing once again and checking out some more stuff , speaking to some more vendors, and buying some Zombie shirts from World of Strange (Zombie Smurf shirt and Zombie Trek) it was time to leave and say to myself . I can not wait till next years Nashville Comic Con and Horror Fest.
